Mr. Palazchenko talked about his new book, My Years with Gorbachev and Shevardnadze: The Memoir of a Soviet Interpreter, published by Pennsylvania State University Press. Mr. Palazchenko was the principal interpreter for Soviet Union premier Mikhail Gorbachev and his foreign minister Eduard Shevardnadze during the crucial period of 1985-1991 and participated in the talks that lead to the end of the Cold War. In his book, Mr. Palazchenko focuses on his impressions of the world’s most powerful political leaders at the time--Presidents Reagan and Bush, Prime Minister Thatcher and others. He claims that the end of the Cold War was possible not only because of the preparation of all parties, but because of the mutual trust that was fostered by world leaders. Mr. Palazchenko is now a consultant to the Gorbachev Foundation, a Russian think tank in Moscow. close
